Abstract: Specimens of Bursatella leachii Blainville, 1817 were photographed from Katigiorgis coast of central Greece at depths of up to 4 m and the maximum number of this species was recorded at a depth of 2 m (39?10'20.3"N 23?20'36.4"E) on a sandy soil bed. A thorough research survey on the species revealed this study to be the first report of its occurrence from this region.
